One of the latest and most welcome restaurants to hit the city of Nottingham is Cast, the replacement development for the former Limelight Bar alongside the Nottingham Playhouse, and owned by Moro Restaurants.
Inside all is chic design with peacock blue and burnt orange dominating to give a warm glow with splashes of contrast. The deli is a nice touch and much needed in the particular area.
In keeping with the buzz of the theatre and its design is the food with deep-fried crab and corn hush puppies with mango relish, roasted pork tenderloin with chorizo mash, pork juice and sage crisps giving the general tone.
A cool line in cocktails helps the evening along and given Moro's other enterprises in Nottingham, the prospects for Cast look promising.
6A Chapel Quarter, Chapel Bar, Nottingham, NG1 6JS [Map]
For some time I made the mistake of thinking that no group of restaurants in the region of 200 locations could hope to maintain the quality for which I was looking.
Then one day I decided to put my prejudices to the test, walked into Oxford ASK Italian! and discovered that I could not have been more mistaken. Their claim to serve freshly prepared quality food in stylish and comfortable surroundings with friendly and efficient service proved to be absolutely spot on.
Since then I have also discovered that a degree of consistency seems to operate throughout their restaurants, and that certainly does take some achieving, implying a degree of management that is enviable. They are perfect places for an impromptu snack, a bit of culinary grazing, or the full works, and families are catered for particularly well.
Their trendy décor usually comprises tiled floors and black furniture with well set tables that sparkle with glass, silver and spotless linen. Ten starters include crostini and bruschetta, followed by a range of salads, pasta and al forno, oven baked pasta, some with chicken.
The pizzas are stone baked in the oven, creating a crisp, authentic and delicious flavour, and they all come topped with mozzarella and tomato. Calzone introduce a touch of opulence with a folded pizza baked in the oven and topped with garlic butter and melted grana padano, whilst inside expect to find chicken or a vegetarian mix.
Amongst the specials may I warmly, in every sense, recommend the polpette al forno, a popular Milanese dish of beef meatballs sautéed in garlic with fire roasted peppers, caramelised onions, chilli and pomodoro sauce, with penne pasta, topped with cheese and oven baked.
An enticing selection of desserts list banoffee pie and tiramisu amongst them, and the coffee tastes like coffee, which may sound banal, but I guess you know what I mean.
Thanks to a well selected wine list speculative drinking can offer handsome dividends, even with prices rarely crossing the £20 barrier.
